What is Area Transportation Partnership (ATP)?

Mn/DOT created ATP to emphasize greater public involvement in preparation of transportation plans and programs.

There are eight ATPs in Minnesota (one for each Mn/DOT District area).

 

Every year, the ATPs develop an Area Transportation Improvement Program (ATIP) which cover a minimum four-year period. ATIPs include all projects seeking federal aid highway, state trunk highway, and federal transit sources of funding.

 

The ATP 7 is working to meet the goals of new federal transportation law - MAP 21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century).To distribute the funds a Statewide Performance Program was created to allow Minnesota to meet performance targets on the National Highway System - a key focus of MAP-21.


New funding programs in MAP-21 include:
